Through the CEPA, the UAE can become a bridge between Vietnam and other countries in the region, stated Minister of Industry and Trade Nguyen Hong Dien during talks with visiting UAE Minister of State for International Trade Affairs Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi in Hanoi on Monday.
The two countries should continue to exchange and complete internal procedures in accordance with regulations to negotiate and sign the agreement as soon as possible, Dien said.
He encouraged UAE businesses to consider investing in a number of fields in Vietnam such as renewable and clean energy; chemical industry; supporting industries and material production; building industrial parks in a number of potential economic regions of Vietnam.
